Great high end restaurant - Edit

Café Sydney is a great place to celebrate a special occasion: it has beautiful views, delicious cocktails and mocktails , and the food is exquisite.
The service is top-notch and the servings are quite big for this kind of place, I had troubles finishing my dessert after having entree and main. The potato dish was definitely the best. The desserts were a bit below the level of the rest of the meal.
They serve meat and seafood but it's basically open air and I wasn't bothered by any unwanted smell or such.

Pros: Great atmosphere and service, harbor view, Vegan menu, Great cocktails and mocktails

Cafe Sydney - Edit

Now this is not going to be for everyone but it is now my favourite restaurant. It does serve meat but it's full vegan menu and stunning harbour views make it amazing. I believe we change the minds of non veg people by "normalising" being vegan and Cafe Sydney is making headway in that regard. Three courses with three options in each means you aren't a second rate diner.

My entree was a peach gazpacho followed by a main of Dosa of potato, okra massala with cashew nut, cucumber pickle and coconut chutney, beautifully spiced. Surprisingly it was better than at genuine Indian restaurants I have been to. Dessert was a vanilla vacherin with passion fruit sorbet, coconut cream, flowers and lemon balm. The vacherin was small chickpea brine meringues.

The general vibe of the place may not feel in line with some vegans ideals but Cafe Sydney is supporting worthwhile projects in the community and they should be encouraged for their full vegan menu.

I dislike that some reviews mark down restaurants because of the price. What is expensive for one is cheap to another. Entrees were $24, mains $34 & dessert $16. I would prefer to consider the overall experience as part of what you pay for which made it reasonable.

My fellow meat eating diners may not be converting to a veg diet anytime soon but my amazing lunch did get them thinking.

Pros: Harbour views, Great food, Choices

Cons: Meat served
